Elderly Dog Dealing With Snow and Cold Weather
My wife and I recently adopted a Mini Aussie Shepherd. We’ve noticed that the cold snow bothers him because he’ll raise his arm or leg in an effort to relieve the pain. That’s what it appears to us that he’s doing.
He’s 15 and his back legs give out on him often. But… he still seems to love being outside. That said, I worry about him and I often go outside and pick him up and bring him in.
Am I being too overprotective? What if the snow and cold gets to be too much and he can’t get up?
Would very much appreciate any thoughts!
